Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has felicitated with the Muslim community on the completion of the Ramadan fast with prayer to almighty Allah to reward and grant their supplications, especially during the holy exercise.

The Governor, however, called on Muslims to observe their Eid prayers at home, stressing that the ban on large social and religious gathering- typical of the end of Ramadan prayers — remained in place as part of the measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

“We congratulate our Muslim brothers and sisters on the successful completion of Ramadan fasting.

“We pray the Almighty Allah to accept it as an act of worship, forgive our excesses, grant all our supplications during and after the holy month and gift us long life and good health.

“This is to enable us observe several Ramadan in the best state of faith in God.”

“Ramadan is a time of complete and sincere submission to the will of God. It serves to purify our souls and train us to be discipline, selfless, and conscious of our creator.

“We beseech Kwarans and indeed, Nigerians, to internalise the takeaways and let them guide our daily existence for the sake of humanity.

“As the fast ends today, we repeat that the 2020 Ramadan came at an extraordinary time of human existence during which we are to temper certain rights and privileges.

“This is to preserve the human race against the ravaging deadly Corona Virus (COVID-19).

“To that extent, there shall be no large gathering for congregational Eid prayer or other large social gatherings in Kwara State this year.

“For emphasis, all religious places remain shut until further notice.

“All malls and related places are to prevent such conditions or interactions that can spread the virus.

“All of these are in line with the COVID-19 safety protocols which have been designed solely to flatten the curve of transmission and protect the people” he added in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye in Ilorin on Saturday.
